Headline News — what used to be part of Turner Broadcasting known for 24-hour non-stop news — seems to be in a bit of a rut. The news channel is still obsessed with the long ago convicted Jodi Arias and now they are jumping on the Christmas creep bandwagon.
Yup, on October 20th, HLNTV.com is OUTRAGED to see Christmas BEFORE HALLOWEEN and they mean it, doggone it, BECAUSE THEY USE ALL CAPS TO TALK ABOUT IT:
One of these things is not like the others: Pumpkin carving, apple picking, CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS. In what can only be described as a seasonal scandal, Christmas-themed items have already started appearing in stores.
In case you have forgotten, it’s only October… as in, there’s still Halloween and Thanksgiving to get through first. Although some people are outraged by the very early Christmas cheer, other shoppers were overjoyed.
Would someone please advise HLNTV.com they are two months late to this party?
Christmas creep, officially, peaks as breaking news in August and September.
They need to move on to complaining about Black Friday killing Thanksgiving already.
